Lyari has suffered a prolonged period of turmoil in shape of gang war, murder and unprecedented instability.
War and destruction had left the soil of Lyari Barren. Lyari which was famous for the dwellers of literature and art turned into red blood, the streets of Lyari where literature used to be discussed turned into spots of blood. Literature and Art were massacred in the land of Lyari.
Black age has swept out and now we see the flood of literature, art, music, again in Lyari with the same enthusiasm and spirit among young eyes of Lyari people.
